Marine Life Scavenger Hunt

17 September 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm



We will join Marine Zoologist and Environmental Scientist, Mona McCrea on Sandycove beach at low tide to learn about the rich marine life found on our doorstep. Mona will explain to everyone what we are going to do, safety and a bit about workings of the tides.  Then, with the help of a scavenger hunt we all go down to the waters edge and work together to find the plants and animals on the sea shore. This activity is for children aged 5+. Younger siblings are welcome but are to supervised by their parents/carers at the top of the shore or down on the lower shore with the group. Although siblings will not be part of the group, Mona will try and include them as much as possible and show them all the interesting animals that are found. Find out more about Mona’s Seashore Kids Duration: 1.5-2hrs Location: Sandycove, Dublin Booking: Please book 1 ticket per participating child aged 5+. An email will be sent out to attendees 7 days before the event with meeting point and details of what to wear/bring. Cancellation/Rescheduling: Of course, we all know Irish weather can be a little unpredictable. We will still go ahead if showers are forecast, but will reschedule we are due heavy rain.
